San Antonio Rampage center Scott Timmins has been charged with trespassing after allegedly getting drunk and breaking into a house several blocks from his home.
Officials with the AHL affiliate of the Florida Panthers didn't immediately comment Wednesday on the 23-year-old player's status.
A woman called police early Monday to report a stranger on her couch. She and her three children fled through a back door. Officers say Timmins appeared intoxicated and told them he didn't know how he got into the house.
He was charged with criminal trespass and freed after posting $800 bail. No attorney could immediately be located for Timmins, who was selected by the Panthers in the sixth round of the 2009 NHL entry draft.

HOME SWEET HOME
Scott Timmins made it home from the bar after a night of partying with teammates in San Antonio. Unfortunately for the Florida Panthers minor league prospect, the home he made it to was not his.
San Antonio – Florida Panthers prospect and current AHL San Antonio Rampage forward Scott Timmins was arrested Monday morning after a woman found him asleep on her couch, according to KENS 5, via CBSSports.com. Timmins was allegedly out drinking at a bar with teammates earlier in the evening.
In his drunken stupor, Timmins perhaps thought it was his house…. Aaaah, the old...
Don’t let his mustache or proclivity for fighting fool you — George Parros is a bit of an intellectual.
That’s what his college years would suggest, at least. Parros attended Princeton University for four years from 1999 to 2003.
There, he totaled 129 penalty minutes during his four seasons with the Tigers. That number pales in comparison to the 979 PIMs he’s racked...
UP AND AT 'EM
Those who work hard often get rewarded, and that is exactly what happened during the Boston Bruins-Florida Panthers game on Thursday night. Early in the second period the Panthers were killing off a penalty and Bruins defenseman Dougie Hamilton missed a bad pass and the puck squirted out to center ice. Panthers forward Shawn Matthias out-hustled Hamilton and dove for the loose...
SUNRISE, Fla. This was the game Anders Lindback and Jacob Markstrom mimicked during their street hockey games in Sweden.
And like the typical contest held in front of their childhood homes, someone walked away with bragging rights.
Tuesday night was Lindback's turn, only the stakes were higher, as he bested Markstrom in their first meeting on NHL ice.
Tough blow to #Panthers. Kris Versteeg is done for the year. ACL Will have surgery soon. Suffered when he went knee on knee with Radko Gudas

Scott Timmins is making the most of his time in San Antonio, getting drunk, passing out on strangers' couches and getting arrested. Ouch.
Mike Ribiero? Interesting to say the least.
It’s long been rumored that the Rangers were talking to the Florida Panthers regarding Stephen Weiss, and Katie Strang confirmed that yesterday. Weiss is now out for the season, having undergone wrist surgery. While that path has closed, it appears that E.J. Hradek has mentioned that the Rangers are in on the Caps’ Mike Ribiero. There...
Talk about hustle and determination...

The Boston Bruins have clearly played like one of the Eastern Conference's top teams, which is perhaps why their last result was so disappointing.
A matchup at home Thursday night against the struggling Florida Panthers should provide Boston with a good opportunity to bounce back.
The Bruins (17-4-3) won three in a row and nine of 11...
8 a.m. ET: The Bruins were just a few minutes from finishing off what would have been a very impressive two-game road trip to start their busiest week of the season. That apparently wasn’t in the cards, however, as Boston coughed up a two-goal lead late Monday in Pittsburgh as the Penguins stormed back to win 3-2.
The B’s return home Thursday night to continue their stretch of...

An AHLer is lucky to be alive after allegedly breaking into a San Antonio home in a drunken stupor early Monday morning before refusing to leave.
"My first instinct was to beat the hell out of him," Benjamin Garza, the home’s owner, told CBS affiliate KENS5 in San Antonio. "(He’s) lucky I wasn't here because I would...
